Oorah offers a significant scholarship to students affiliated with Oorah’s programs, TheZone campers and select public high school students. We also offer a monthly stipend to help cover living expenses. Email Israel@oorah.org to determine eligibility for either the scholarship or the stipend.
Eligibility for a scholarship and/or stipend is contingent on attendance in a Discover U session the summer prior and following your year in Israel. Discover U is Oorah’s summer program for post-high school guys and girls hosted at TheZone, our magnificent campus in upstate New York. There are several Discover U sessions each summer of either two or three week trips.
There are many additional scholarship opportunities available to help fund your year. We provide this list merely as a resource for you and are not affiliated with nor take any responsibility for any of the programs listed here.
